One thing characteristic of Chalcolithic culture in the Beersheba area is the chalcolythic urn. Ceramic churns are present only in the Chalcolythic era (until Classic era) and otherwise would have been made from skin, hung from a tree and whacked back and forth. These churns indicate the secondary product revolution. Also, there are ceramic cult stands in Beersheba.
